Default Second wave

After speaking to a few health professionals it seems there is a general consensus of a second wave arriving in September, October. I hope this isnt the case as I think alot of self employed and other workers will go under financially if this is the case. Its not COVID I fear its a collapse of the economy and people becoming ferral to support themselves and their families. Anyone have any thoughts on this? Owl-

Instead of letting the virus kill some of our people, we're going to let it kill our economy and our society.

'Protect the NHS'? Did no-one explain to these people that the NHS exists to protect US??

Is there any link between cities like Luton, Blackburn, Rochdale and Leicester, which might help to explain why these cities have lots of Covid? Demographics, perhaps? No? Oh, OK.

The virus has exposed that our laws only apply to parts of the population. If you chant political slogans, you are not required to comply with lockdown rules. If you run a sweatshop, you won't be closed down, even if you're helping to spread the virus. If you're the kind of person who teaches their kids to obey the law, then more fool you.

Those are some of my thoughts. I am exceedingly angry about how this is being managed. The only possible ray of light is that it's not Corbyn/Abbott in charge.

I'm not sure how the virus is in the UK, I've read that its rough. I visited once and the people were wonderful, so you'all are always in my prayers.

In the US we almost had the virus managed but instead of taking prudent precautions, large crowds, from both the left and the right, took to the streets and the bars ( pubs ). We have crazy people going into public places illegally without masks. Confronted they cough and scream spittle into people's faces.

I've done good keeping myself isolated, but that's impossible to do completely. Unfortunately, I was exposed to a friend of mine's bipolar son. He stopped his medication and went off in a bipolar rage, inches from my face.

I didn't have time to put on my mask. He refuses to get tested. I have 2 more weeks before I know if he gave the virus to me. He apologised after he calmed down.

As for the economy, it has become apparent that we cannot stay closed. Most businesses are reopening but I think some things have changed.

I think movie houses and music concerts will change forever.

I've come to believe that we will all have to get the virus. If we live or die is already set in stone. The economy will bounce back. It always does.

Good luck to you and yours. and cheers.

If you read medical papers the main thought is this is the third wave, first was in December /Jan this year the second in March and April and not this is the third wave.

Its going to be far bigger and stronger than last time and hit more people a lot harder.
Main reasons being we are now less careful than earlier this year. The government financial scheme only covered 70% of the people and then only 80% of their wages. I know hundreds of self employed people who are now near or at breaking point with money. Bailiffs never stopped work and neither did county courts and ccj and so forth.

Many businesses are still not allowed to pen and yet many are. the rules and regulations are complex and confusing as well as corrupt and stupid.
If Boris wants me to follow the rules he had best stop writing them in pencil and changing his mind every other day.

Meanwhile a 75 year old, safe, effective drug with no patents is being "banned" so they can look for a new vaccine at modern nose bleed prices.

Nothing is going to get better until Trump wins again and we get a real attorney general in office who is interested in inditing the Coup Klutz Clan instead of eating the ham sandwiches.
